PHP Popen() function overview:
Popen function in php opens a pipe to a process executed by forking the command given by command.
It was implementet since PHP 4 version.
popen ( string $command_to_execute , string $mode )
Second argument is vulnerable to buffer overflow.Reason why i mentioned Apache here,is because
when we execute poc.php Apache HTTP server crash without any report in error log.You can test on WAMP too,on CLI or browser.
Tested on: PHP 5.2.8/4.2.1/4.2.0
$handle = popen('/whatever/', $____buff);
